The "Vertical"- Bhutan Climbing Club (VBCC) is a young group of rock climbing enthusiasts that is determinedly trying to establish and promote the sport in Bhutan. It is our long-term aim to popularise rock climbing not only as a worthwhile hobby but also as a mainstream sport. Judging from the enthusiasm evident in the encouraging number of fresh faces at the rock each week, we have reason to believe that the club can expand to a nationwide scale.
To be realistic, though, we have had to content ourselves with measured pace and set about establishing strong roots in the capital, Thimphu, for starter.
Really appreciate YANA's professional organization of the entire trip. Could not imagine how a trekking trip could such be well organized - more or less like a 5-star hotel with the only difference of we were at more than 3,000 above sea level. Special thanks to Yeshey and the chef who had given tons of assistance when I was descending due to attitude sickness. - Simon Liu, Hong Kong
